vote. but that leaves a big problem and that's the debt. >> it's the debt itself. i couldn't agree more. the crisis comes, bill, not if we don't pass the debt ceiling, but if we do pass a debt ceiling it send a signal to the financial markets around the world that the united states is not capable of dealing with this enormous debt. that's the crisis. if we don't get a credible plan that brings the deficit spending down over the next two years and the president has been holding out on that. bill: do you think the markets will be spooked by that? >> you are exactly right. even as moody's and s & p said they will downgrade the debt. you would expect for the interest rate on those bonds to go up but the last couple weeks they have gone down. we cast a carte blanche $2.5 trillion increase in the debt i believe that could cause a financial panic. bill: that forces the markets to quiver. >> this is the ultimate point of leverage. that's why there has been a stalemate. republicans said if we cave on this we'll never get serious about spending. but right now it take the president to sign this bi

" article and tweeted this morning that bachmann won't be able to raise money from big donors because they don't really like her. i think a few things are going on. that could be true. perry sitting on sidelines could be true. i think if the corporations or big donors, big bundlers have money to give, they are giving it to the senate g.o.p. races. >> bob: they are. the other reason they are not giving it to her is they are scared to death that she will become president. that's my new zealand point. give her credit for raising money. she did it last year, and state-of-the-arted in the healthcare debate. she was smart getting out there -- and smart in the healthcare debate. this is not as formidable -- >> eric: this is only june 27. >> bob: but the real key is in the presidential politics, how many times do you go to the donor list to give money? if you have those small con industrybutions you can go back four or five times. if you can't go back ten times you are probably not going to hold up a big number. >> eric: there is also news she may have quit her church. what do you know? >> gr

. the boehner bill has capped on the spending so that seems to be a big divide. how do you tweak that to make the two of them happy? that might be a tall order. i can't think what would make the tea party satisfied with this bill, but balanced budget amendment? >> right. there has within talk around here unconfirmed that that is the sweetener being added to the boehner bill, a balanced budget amendment. but really this is an extraordinary evening in an extraordinary episode, greta, one that political scientists will be studying for 50 years or more. we watch both divided government at its most dysfunctional. and a president who to many observers appears to be side lined for the time being as -- congressional leaders work behind closed doors to hammer this out and deep divisions whereby a powerful speaker john boehner is having difficulty coralling votes he needed. remember he lost 59 republican votes. you have this large freshman class, 80 members, a lot backed by the tea party and elected here to, on a promise of cutting spending and take one exyampem. tim scott from south carolina was one o
